When people like Herbert Muskie take up residence in your mind, there's nothing you can do to get them out.

Colin Potter is a skinny boy, hungry for chocolate. Herbert Muskie is enormously fat, hungry for revenge. A dramatic encounter down at the creek forges an unhappy alliance between the vindictive man and the fearful child.

But who is the fat man and why does he hate the people of Loomis? What guilty secrets are hidden in the past and why are Colin's parents such special targets?

A taut thriller from the award-winning author of The Fire-Raiser, Salt and Gool.
